Hi all I have a small problem that I have not been able to resolve.
I have a p100 set up as a internet server for my windos comps Redhat 6.1
All machines have good internet access
I have 2 Identical 56k modems.
have 1 permanet ip-no
I have set up mgetty and AUTO PPP to accept a incomeing call on ttyS2 wich
works fine it answers and assigns a ip no 192.168.1.15 to the incomeing
When I look at the route table 192.168.1.15 is there on ppp1
Now the problem is once the connection is established I can ping the
remote machine i.e 192.168.1.15
and I can ping the server 192.168.1.1 the pings are about 140.00 ms which is
okay but the server seems to go to sleep or something because although the
pings are returned there is a 50% loss and a huge delay between each ping
makes it unusable.
I can connect to my Linux server via another internet connection and there
is no problem
I have only 1 eithernet card in the server
with 2 modems 1 in 1 out
It is like the process is going to sleep and only wakes up every now and
Im sorry I dont know of any other way to explain this.
